The ZZF promotes gender equality and equal opportunity according to the Basic Recommendations on the Equalization of Men and Women in the Leibniz Association as well as in accordance with the ZZF’s equalization plan.
The activities of the ZZF’s equal opportunities officer comprise the following areas:
► protection of women’s interests in the application procedure through advisory participation
► support to female and male employees availing themselves of parental leave
► targeted promotion of female junior researchers through an internal seminar program
► ensuring compliance with the equalization plan providing for an increase in women in leadership positions
► networking with other equal opportunities officers in the Leibniz Association
► representing the interests of the severely disabled.
The ZZF endeavors to facilitate the compatibility of family and profession and to counteract the underrepresentation of women in leadership positions in the world of scholarship.
More information on the equalization policies of the Leibniz Association can be found at the homepage of the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Scientific Community (WGL).
Currently, the ZZF does not have an equal opportunities officer. No female colleague has applied for the election which had been scheduled for January 29, 2021.
